I’m a prayer warrior. I’d like to call myself that as I developed a deep love for prayer a few years back. I used a small notebook just to keep track of people or things I should pray for, then cross them out when they get answered, and clearly I was reminded of God’s omnipotence and mercy as He answered prayers in the span of days, weeks, and months. That was just a small piece of notebook with nothing but bulleted prayer requests for each month. But I cherished it deeply.
If you can remember, I wrote about deciding to keep a spiritual journal for 2014. I’m really THAT old-fashioned that I prefer writing on paper rather than depending on apps for that. Aside from what happened to me during the day, I also included things to pray for at the end of each entry.
While I was browsing Facebook last month, I saw that Certified Positive will be releasing a Prayer Journal! And what joy, what joy, I felt!
I partnered with them before for a giveaway last year and I really love the mission and vision of their store. That’s why I didn’t think twice to pre-order mine! So if you’re like me, who’s constantly looking for ways to have a deeper relationship with Christ, let me show you what’s in store for you when you buy a copy of their Prayer Journal!
The first few pages contain a quote about prayer, What is Prayer?, What are the results of Prayer?, Obstacles to Prayer, Why Journal, and Tips on keeping a Journal. These first pages give a glimpse of what the importance is of having a prayer journal.
It also contains a Prayer List for the important aspects of your life that you want to consistently pray about. For example, under The World, The Nation, and The Church, I wrote Leaders because we need to pray for the leaders of all three governing bodies. Then we have lists for Family and Friends, Personal, and Others.
There are a few pages for Confessions. This page is to write all the wrong things, major or minor sins, that we have committed, as we aim for forgiveness and turning back from it. 1 John 1:9 🙂
Then there’s a few pages for Revelations. This could be simple truths you’ve learned in your devotion, or God revealed something to you through the day, week, or month. It may not matter so much that moment He has revealed something to you, but this might just come in handy when you need encouraging!
Now this part is the real deal. This is where you’ll be writing your heart out in prayer to the Lord. There’s a space for scripture, your prayer, God’s Answers, and some Notes (prolly little lessons you learn along the way while praying). I’ve filled out a few days in here already and I can’t help but be surprised with the way it feels. I feel so overwhelmed with the answered prayers for the past days, no matter how simple they may be.
The last part of the Prayer Journal is a series of pages for Notes. I think there’s no right or wrong for whatever you will write here. Maybe some thoughts, lyrics of a hymn or spiritual song maybe. Whatever floats your boat!
I’ve been using it since the day it was shipped to me and I can only try my best to describe how this is slowly keeping me closer to God. I admit I’ve been missing out on some days to pray but keeping a journal really encourages me to look forward to my prayers and their answers. And I hope to impart to you that great blessing that’s why you have to read on the next parts!!!
